I am planning a short break during the first 5 days (1-5/1) of January 2015 in Bergamo. We would like to stay in the hopefully snowy mountains (since we don't have snow in Malta). This will be the first snowy experience for my 13 and 9 years old children. Where is the best place to stay where we can enjoy the snow and so some fun activities like toboggan ect and have fantastic view. Normally what is the weather like during January?
Do we have to rent a car or we manage to travel by public transport?. What else can we do?. We are nature lovers. Obviously we would also like to visit the city of Bergamo.
